§ Mr. Skinner
asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether he will list the total cost of the quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisations' salaries bill for 1978, 1979 and 1980.
§ Mr. Channon
There is no generally accepted definition of the terms "quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisation". Details of the total cost of the wages and salaries bill for the official bodies to which Ministers make appointments are not held centrally.
